Perfectly timed pop-ups
Monday 17th August
Here at Louis we're all getting ready for our next pop up restaurant night. The nights - each of which celebrates a different culinary tradition or country -Taste of Spain, Turkey, Vietnam and Poland for example - started last September and have been a big hit with all of them selling out fast.
Slow Food, Taste of Italy, on August 21, combines delicious Italian food and drink with a chance to learn more about the slow food movement.
For £15 a ticket you get the chance to taste a range of Italian meats and cheeses plus wine from the La Marche area of Italy (in the North East corner). All in the best company, of course!
Let me whet your appetite - Pecorino di Fossa and Vinaccia cheeses, Prosciutto and Salame Magro, white Falerio and red Borgiano wines.
We'll also be showing off SAPA - a non alcoholic 'wine' produced from the skins of the grape that we serve poured over ice cream - its delicious! But you can't take my word for it, so if you'd like a ticket get in touch as we're selling out fast.
Our guest for the evening will be Silvia Venturini who comes from La Marche and now promotes East Anglian Slow Food. Here at the deli we are big advocates of the Slow Food movement whose main aims are to promote good local foods, to preserve regional foods in danger of disappearing and to create networks of like-minded people who can work together to promote these aims.
We were founder members of the Slow Food Anglia approved scheme for businesses (currently there are 32 members across the region) which lists food and related businesses that are recognised as working to promote local produce. Silvia has big plans to boost membership and make this region a real force to be reckoned with. By the end of 2015 we even hope there will be an Awards scheme in place too - we'd love to be nominated in the Best Deli category!
Worldwide membership of the Slow Food movement now tops almost 200,000 in 175 different countries. Its an idea that is really catching on here with English membership having increased by over 400 members in the last four months alone and East Anglian membership growing by 40 in the same time.
If all that sounds good then there'll be the chance to learn more about the movement, our part in it and how other food producers and businesses can get involved by coming along on the night.
Come and have a glass of wine with us!
We have a range of cakes made with gluten free ingredients and a daily vegetarian lunch choice.
